Finland. 1991 ‘Section 2.’ Act on the Export and Transit of Defence Materiel (242/1990; amendments up to 900/2002 included); Section 2. Helsinki: Ministry of Defence. 1 April
Section 2 (197/1995)
(1) The export of defence materiel and its transit is allowed only if authorization (an export licence) has been granted.
(2) Authorization is granted on application by the Government or by the Ministry of Defence. If the materiel concerned belongs to the first or second category of the product categories referred to in section 5 or if the licence application is of significant interest in terms of foreign and security policy, authorization is subject to decision by the Government plenary session.
(3) The provision in subsection 2 above on decision-making by the Government plenary session is not applied in cases where an export or transit of defence materiel is of minor monetary value or concerns a temporary removal from the country of defence materiel which does not result in the transfer abroad of proprietary rights or control.
